Flamethrower Drones Are The Craziest Thing We've Ever Seen, And They're Going On Sale

Considering that growing heat is one of the greatest problems facing human society today, one could assume that the last thing humans need is more fire in their lives.


However, fire has always been an integral part of what makes us human, either as a tool in battle, a means to make food edible, or, as Sigmund Freud has noted, an element which has been a critical point of origin for the majority of societies.


Now, the Throwflame company—that bills itself as the “oldest flamethrower manufacturer in the U.S.”—intends to extend the burn to those hard-to-reach spots begging to be scorched.


And what better way to do that than by releasing a fully-functional flamethrower unit that can be attached to flying drones?


As the Verge reports, Throwflame’s TF-19 WASP is a new fiery appendage which will allow any commercial-grade lightweight lift drone with a payload capacity of five pounds to spit fire as far as 25 feet away. Also, the TF-19 will be equipped with a one-gallon fuel tank capable of streaming out a steady jet of fire for up to a hundred seconds, ensuring anything targeted by the WASP will be burned to oblivion.


The fire-breathing infernal flying machine comes at a cost. The WASP will be sold for $1,499—a price which might seem steep for some, but might be a steal for certain specialists whose vocation relies on fire.


In a promo video the company released, the WASP is seen spewing fire from a DJI S1000 drone with an A2 flight controller, 6S 16,000mAh LiPo battery and a TBS Tango R/C remote, that the Verge estimates “could easily add another $2,600 to the cost”.


But the TF-19 isn’t only for shits and giggles alone—as Throwflame suggests the drone is the right solution to several problems varying from controlled agricultural burns to “ground clearing, snow and ice removal, incinerating weeds and pesky insect hives, pyrotechnic events and movie props, firefighting and training, (and) grassland management.”


However, company founder Quinn Whitehead also admitted that approximately half of its customers are recreational buyers just looking to play with fire.
